Burkina Faso: at least 170 dead after attack on 3 villages

Bukina Faso in mourning after the massacre of 170 people “executed” during “massive murderous attacks” perpetrated against three villages.

These attacks took place last week in military-led northern Burkina Faso. The victims were all believed to have been killed on the same day.  

That same day, February 25, separate massacres were committed in a mosque and a church in this Sahelian country.

A team of investigators went to the various villages concerned on February 29, in order to “make all the findings and collect all the evidence”, according to the prosecutor of Ouahigouya (North), Aly Benjamin Coulibaly. 

Burkina Faso, led by soldiers who took power by force in 2022, has been confronted since 2015 ,violence attributed to armed movements affiliated with Islamic State group, as well as reprisals attributed to armed forces and their auxiliaries, which left nearly 20,000 dead and more than two million displaced.
